Authentic Experiences


Golan Heights Kibbutzim

Often overlooked by foreign tourists, the Golan Heights are a remote and tranquil region in Israel’s far north. This area is, however, one of Israel’s hidden gems, offering opportunities to explore beautiful nature and learn about modern Israeli history. Hiking the Golan Heights’ magnificent nature trails will captivate your imagination, and visiting the battle sites of Israel’s modern wars will make you understand the strategic issues faced by this country. Although hotels do exist in this region, Kibbutzim in the area offer a unique opportunity to experience rustic charm amidst breathtaking scenery. Staying in a cozy Kibbutz guest house means enjoying a relaxed, natural atmosphere, without having to make any sacrifices with regards to service and comfort.
